#5 of 75 This craazy buick of mine...
Jul 21, 2007 (4:19 am)
I have a '94 Buick LeSabre that idles very high and the speedometer doesn't work. One mechanic told me that "mice" might have chewed the wires up in the dash, but that would be impossible, since mice aren't in my car. The "service engine soon" light has been on since I've had it and I recently pulled the ECM out from under the dash and I am not sure how to be sure if the ECM and PROM chip are a match. It has been replaced somewhere around the year 2000. I seem to be stuck at this point. What can I do from here?
#6 of 75 Buick LeSabre/power windows
Jul 22, 2007 (9:29 pm)
have 2000 lesabre with power windows problem. it seems that the window motors all working, but on 2 the cables either snapped or came loose. was hoping if someone has had similar problems, would love any info. to help with the situation. i called gm to see about recalls, but there were none. honestly my argument is i have owned about 6 Buicks the past 14 yrs. never, ever had windows problem. this is a newer car with low mileage, and as i told gm, i feel this should not happen ever on such a newer car; realize no warranty, but feel the repair should be done gratis from them.

I have a 2000 lesabre as well. Indeed a good car. I have replaced every window motor in my car and I have replaced the drivers side one twice. The first one I paid $450.00 at the dealership. Now you can get them at www.powerupauto.com for about $65.00. They usually charge me about $30.00 to install at the dealership body shop. Other than the window motor problems the car has been solid. I have 175,000 miles on mine and it steal runs great.

hello to wesconjr. and thanks for the info. when you say dealership body shop fixed it cheaper for you, what dealership body shop? different than the first dealership you paid the $450.00? if i could get it done at the discounted price, that'd be great. any feedback helpful.
#9 of 75 can't get codes
Aug 07, 2007 (8:11 am)
I am unable to get a scanner to link up with my '95 lesabre. When i try to plug my obd11 scanner up i get a message it is unable to connect with the computer. the scanner works with my other vehicle so i know it is good. Has anyone got an idea on correcting this prob.

That must be one of the crossover years where the connector is OBD II but the link is OBD I. It requires an adapter.

Thank you for your reply. What kind of adapter and where can I get one?

I have a 2000 la sabre limited, 170,000 miles. Great running car. With the rear windows, you can hear the motors run but nothing happens with the windows. Is this the regulator, cable, or what? Also, how difficult to fix? Additionally, my steering wheel lights do not work. I can get the switches out of the steering wheel but the lights look like little blue LED lights that are soldered to a little circut board.

Lately when I start the car I have been getting a CHECK ENGINE light that stays on. I then shut it off and on again and the Light turns off. Also once in awhile the car shuts off for no reason when driving down the road. To restart it, it sometimes takes 15 times of turning the key on and off, almost like the fuel pump is told not to turn on.
We put it on a machine and got 2 codes:
P1361- Ignition Control Signal Not Toggling
We are pointing toward Replacing the Ignition Control Module.
Does anyone have any ideas or imput?
